St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is a small, private school that relies heavily on fundraising in order to support our mission and provide an exceptional educational choice for students in Northern Minnesota. Throughout the school year students, families, parishioners, and community members are asked to participate in planning, organizing, and implementing fundraisers for our school.

Lower tuition or pay it forward while you shop.
SCRIP is a year-round fundraiser for the school that allows you to take the regular, everyday purchases you are already making and use them towards a tuition discount and donation to the school.
Easy to buy: Buy online or stop by the school office to purchase gift cards to spend at your favorite retailers. Buying groceries or gas today? Maybe going out to eat or on a shopping trip? We have popular retailer cards for all of your needs!
Easy to use: Spend the gift cards at your retail store of choice! Easy to get rewarded: When you use your SCRIP gift cards a percentage of that purchase goes back to the school (percentage varies depending on retailer and amount purchased). From that, 50% is used as a tuition discount for a student of your choosing, and 50% is donated to the school for general operating costs.
